Hope you’re all doing well! I’ve been pondering something lately and wanted to get your thoughts on it. So, we often talk about the benefits of mental health-related games in terms of stress relief and mindfulness. But here’s a twist - do you think these games could potentially lead to addiction?
We’ve seen how engaging video games can be, and if a mental health game becomes a daily escape, could it inadvertently turn into a habit that’s hard to break? What are your opinions on this?
Now, I’m not saying these games are bad – in fact, they can be quite helpful – but do you think there’s a line between helpful engagement and addictive behavior when it comes to mental health-related games?
Here are a couple of questions to share your thoughts:
- Have you ever found yourself spending more time on a mental health game than you initially intended? If so, how did you manage to balance it?
- Do you believe game developers have a responsibility to incorporate features that prevent excessive use or addiction, similar to what some social media platforms have started doing?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this topic!
